2009_03_05-Eggs.jpgWhat are you eating for dinner tonight? How about an egg? Here are 10 of our favorite ways to eat an egg for supper. • 1. Pizza - Eggs on breakfast pizza - it's so delicious! Tiny quail eggs cook quickly, if you want to go that route. Get the recipe: Breakfast Pizza • 2. Open face sandwich - We like to pile a fried or scrambled egg on fresh, homemade bread along with any leftover vegetables or scraps from the fridge. Get the recipe: Egg, Arugula, and Herb Tartine • 3. Baked in a dish - The easy, versatile method of baking eggs on top of whatever you have around - canned tomatoes, a little cream, some herbs - has been a brunch staple for us. Try them baked on top of leftover beans or lentils, too. Get the recipe: Mark Bittman's Baked Eggs with Tomato (for a Weekend Brunch Crowd) • 4. Frittata - The frittata a great make-ahead dish. Cook one up with eggs, potatoes, and vegetables, and eat off it all week. Get the recipe: Lemon Frittata with Leeks and Goat Cheese, also: Zucchini-Potato Frittata • 5. Stir-fried - Stir-fried egg with rice is a classic comfort food. Get the recipe: Stir-Fried Egg and Tomato • 6. Quiche - Quiche is more like a baked custard than the sturdier texture of a frittata. It's comforting and elegant at the same time. Get the recipe: Confetti Quiche with Curry Crust • 7. Eggs 'n' greens - A fried egg over garlicky greens: it doesn't get much better than that! Get the recipe: Garlic Greens with Pine Nuts and an Egg - Also, Fried Eggs and Collard Greens Over Polenta • 8. Slow-scrambled - Scrambled eggs should be cooked very, very slowly until they turn into a meltingly soft and custardy delicacy to be eaten on toast. Even so, they're one of the faster dinners we know how to make. Get the recipe: Slow Scrambled Eggs with Rosemary and Capers • 9. Over noodles - After greens, noodles and pasta are perhaps our favorite thing to dump an egg on. Get the recipe: Sesame-Garlic Soba Noodles with Fried Egg • 10. In a casserole - Who says that breakfast casserole is just for the morning? This delicious hash of bread, ham, and eggs is good morning and night. Get the recipe: "Ham and Cheese" Breakfast Casserole What's your favorite way to eat an egg for dinner?
